Events before the arrest of accused
While talking to the media his cousin’s brother said “my brother used to work as a store helper in the morning and at night he used to work as a security guard in the ATM. He was a single brother of 7 sisters and was the father of two small kids. He sacrificed his life but didn’t let the thieves steal money from the ATM. We are suspecting that the J&K Police is also involved in this murder as they are not providing us any assistance”.
A resident said, ” in the last year’s we have never seen him misbehaving with anyone. His parents are such nice people that we all residents of this area love them”. He further added “the robbery was pre-planned as the CCTV camera was covered with chewing gum. We are warning the government that until any of his family members gets a job and compensation for his death, we will not end our protest.
His brother-in-law said ” we demand that J&K Bank Chairman, DC Jammu, Divisional Commissioner, and IG Jammu give us a written assurance of a job, we are not going to take the dead body for the funeral, and we will continue our protest. He was working in the ATM for the last 3 years. In the CCTV footage, it was found that the thrives first tired him, broke his teeth, and then killed him”.

The person was the only earning member of the family. After seeing the condition of. His family members and home, tears roll down from everyone’s eyes.
